About Us

From our base in the beautiful city of York, award winning Alfresco Canopies carry out full design and installation projects throughout mainland UK. The majority of our domestic projects are completed within our home county of Yorkshire where we are the go-to supplier and installer for all of your outdoor living covered spaces.

With our many years of experience within the Garden Canopy and Veranda industry, we can supply you with tailored solutions that go above and beyond the standard catalogue products from some other companies.

We have also been featured on the long running ITV soap opera Emmerdale where they chose one of our Glass Canopies with a Victorian upgrade for their main set.

We like to be involved at the beginning of a project – allowing you to utilise our knowledge and experience and develop the best proposal from the start – before supporting you through to the end of process. From simple carport canopies to complete Glass rooms, Awnings, Pergolas and Louvred and folding roof Canopies, Alfresco Canopies will provide you with exactly what you require.

That said, we can also offer a planned and reactive maintenance package when the original product has been supplied by another company.
